Description

Since Quakers did not use headstones, this has been more difficult to describe, however much work has been done by the trust over the past 5 years, especially since Mr. Juan Young present owner, wanted to bulldoze it down.

Other Problems

We just returned from a dedication of an historical highway marker for this sight. To further destroy this, as Mr. Young wants to do, is an affront to the families who were represented here. If this were Ca. it would not be allowed since such sites are well valued.

Other Information:

I have located my Ford family plot with no help from the city. The grave markers are missing, the plot is overgrown, and homeless people are sleeping there. I have many other family members buried in Maplewood and I'm very distressed that the city of Charlottesvile Virignia has stopped the perpetual care which they are requred to provided to those of us who's families bought plots in the cemetery. Three years ago the city removed the cemetery's caretaker. The only thing the city provides now is grass cutting and the man doing that is damaging the garve stones with his mower. It is appalling that this being allowed to happen and I want to put a stop to it.

Other_Information:

This cemetary has been constantly vandalized, it is even unknown where the graves are at this point. Many of the headstones have been smashed. There is no gate, half the people living in the community are unaware of its presence. Since the early 1980's or perhaps earlier this graveyard has been an absolutely heartbreaking sight. There is no gate to keep folks out and no history posted about the family.

I hope someone can do something about this.
